Considerate family

I have some topics that I wanted to write recently.

But unfortunately, it's hard for me to make time.

I can't write about them on time, but I would like to try to write them one by one before I forget them.


I went to work last Sunday.

A troublesome incident suddenly occurred, which we had to resolve before we could leave the office.

As a result, my coworker and I had to work overtime for 2 hours, but we couldn't solve the problem.

When I went to work, I told my husband that I will come home around 5pm, but I came home at 7pm.

I was so exhausted.

When I opened the entrance door of my house, my 6-year-old daughter came to me and said;

"Hi Mom, we are making dinner now!"

"Oh, you are trying it, are you? Wow, thank you!"

My husband and I were making dinner in the kitchen.

Then my 8-year-old son said;

"Look mom! I put all things away in the living room. It's clean, isn't it?"

I was surprised to see the tidy living room.

"Wow, I am glad! You did it by yourself. Thank you son!"

He looked happy.

My daughter told me:

"This is a special dish I cooked only for you.  Try it!"

She made an omelet for me.

She wrote "ありがとう (Thank you)" with ketchup on it.



I was really impressed to see it.

"How delicious! I am really happy. I'm sure you will make a good cook in the future!"

She was glad to hear that.

My husband cooked other dishes.

"Thank you, all of you help me a lot. I forgot how tired I was!"

I was really moved by their kindness.



Thank you(^o^) for reading this article!

  2. Hello Kumi-san,

    Your life sounds very hectic. Your Daughters' cooking skills are very impressive, as are her writing skills. She is able to write in Hiragana with tomato sauce better than I am with pen and pencil :).

    I have not been so busy, so I have had time to read a new book on the Japanese language called "Human Japanese" on my Android tablet. It is a beginner/intermediate level Nihongo study type of book. Covering a little kanji, vocabulary and various simple grammar rules of the Japanese language.

    It is a fun enjoyable read.

    Here is a list of some of the issues found with the rest of your post:

    This line:
    I have some topics I want to write recently.

    Should be:
    I have had some topics I wanted to write about recently.

    Or:
    I have some topics that I wanted to write about recently.

    This line:
    I can't write them on time, but I would like to try to write them one by one before I forget them.

    Should be:
    I can't write about them on time, but I would like to try to write them one by one before I forget them.

    This line:
    A trouble suddenly occurred, and we had to resolve the problem until we left our office.

    Should be:
    A troublesome incident suddenly occurred, which we had to resolve before we could leave the office.

    This line:
    "Oh, you try it, don't you? Wow, thank you!"

    Should probably be:
    "Oh, you are trying, are you? Wow, thank you!"

    This line:
    "Wow, I am glad! You did it by yourself. Thank you my son!"

    Reason:
    The above sentence is correct but is more likely to be written as:

    "Wow, I am glad! You did it by yourself. Thank you son!"

    This line:
    "How delicious! I am really glad. I'm sure you will make a good cook in the future!"

    Should be:
    "How delicious! I am really happy. I'm sure you will make a good cook in the future!"

    This line:
    "Thank you, all of you help me a lot. I forget how tired I am!"

    Should be:
    "Thank you, all of you helped me a lot. I forgot how tired I was!"

    1. Hello Terry!
      Thank you for the corrections.
      I corrected them.
      Recently, it is hard to make my own time.
      I wish I could finish housework more quickly, so that I would have time to learn English more.

    2. Hi Kumi-san,

      So long as you don't stop practicing entirely you will keep improving. Are you still doing the Skype speaking lessons?

    3. I take online lessons once or twice a week now. If I stop it, I am sure that I would forget what I learn, so I should make an effort to make time.
